If I asked you whether you want to start investing, what would your response be?
If you said “yes” that you want to start investing, then have you started investing yet? If “no”, do any of these sound familiar?
I can’t afford it.
I don’t know how to do it.
The market is too risky.
I may need the money later.
If you said “yes” to anything on this list then you are definitely not alone.
Unfortunately, if you are like many women in the United States you aren’t investing at all or you aren’t investing enough.
I remember when I first started investing while I was in my first job out of grad school. I was afraid at first. I was afraid that I would invest money and need it later.
However, I decided to ultimately face that fear head-on and begin to invest. I did this by starting off slowly, and I didn’t invest money that I couldn’t afford to lose (i.e. money for my living expenses). Then as I grew more confident and better able to manage my new budget, I grew my investing.
It didn’t happen overnight, but it was important to just get started. I finally got started, because I learned that not investing at all or enough has severe consequences because it can cost you thousands earnings that you can never get back.
But, what if you want to invest (or hint, even start that emergency fund) and don’t know where the money is coming from?
Well…I have an amazing gift for you just for being a member of the FNPhenomenal community. Our amazing friends over at Ellevest, are going to give you $50 towards a financial goal!
